Iftar Moments Hijri 1431: Roundup 3

Hi Everyone,

  Finally after a long time Iftar Moments: Roundup 3 and the final roundup of this event is online. I don't want to drag you guys any longer with this roundup so I made this a bit long one, so please take your time to go through each and every dish individually. Initially I said it was over 200 entries, but I received a few entries after the event closed, including those entries it exceeded to more than 260 entries. I'm overwhelmed with your responses, my sincere thanks to each and everyone who participated in this event. Everyone who took part in this event are always special to me, so I give everyone this Special Award with your name in it which you'll receive via mail.
  Okay have I forgotten something, nooo I remember the winner... The winner will be announced two days later:-)
  I wish I could more gifts for the participants, but this time it's for only one. Next time may be I'll get some sponsors to increase the number of gifts. Yes Insha allah I have decided to have this event as a annual one for every Ramadhan with all your love and support.
  Right let's go to the roundup now, in this roundup we have 1 Party Menu, the last 10 days menu. Apart from having 30 days menu structure, I have also classified few maincourse, starter separately., each and every dish is different so please take your time to go through every recipe individually.
  Last but not least we have a very fabulous collection of sweets, from traditional to new creative ones. This sweet collection will be more than enough as a reference for Eid or any special occasion.
